I am a tutor of the English language living and working in Virginia.
My interest in Wikipedia is to expand people's ready access to a worldwide knowledge base.
As an English tutor, I have a professional interest in increasing the quality of communication on English Wikipedia.
My declaration of interest (per WP:COI): I am an alumnus of Patrick Henry Community College (graduated 2010), and I am currently employed by the same college (I am not a work-study; I am actually on staff). As such, I obviously have a personal interest in the article on said community college. However, I try to avoid editing the article on PHCC (partly because I'm not sure exactly what my workplace's policy is on the matter). I detestacademic boosterism, and if any of my edits to the article (or any Martinsville/Henry County-related articles, for that matter) come across as puffery, then you should see to it that I am thoroughly whacked with a wet trout (I have, for your convenience, added a button on the upper-right of my talk page expressly for that purpose, in fact).
Note to CheckUsers:
Harmonicsonic is also employed by PHCC; although he is not (currently) as active as I am on WP, we do often use the same computer and/or the same IP range/address (all PHCC computers are on one server). I don't plan to do anything that would require a sockpuppet investigation, but if by some odd chance something does come up, that account is not a sockpuppet.
For your work at the Aviators dispute and, indeed, in general in dispute resolution. Best regards, TransporterMan (TALK) 16:08, 30 January 2012 (UTC)

Hi Sleddog116. I don't know if you've got a welcome from the others and my close friends in dispute resolution (Steven Zhang, Mr. Stradivarius, TransporterMan), but I'd like to formally welcome you to dispute resolution! (A little late, though). I've seen some of your work on the dispute resolution noticeboard and just wanted to tell you to keep up the good work! :) Whenaxistalk·contribs | DR goes to Wikimania! 20:48, 19 March 2012 (UTC)

Sleddog, you really live up to your username. You've endured a great deal, and you help even more than you endure. I can see a little wooden casket of brandy around your neck, meant for me, even as I write this! —Djathinkimacowboy 23:27, 5 April 2012 (UTC)
